Meet Rico&Irene
We will open the doors of our flat, situated inside an antique palace which is part of the URBAN HERITAGE protected by the town hall. Before starting with the culinary experience, I am going to show you the palace: Its two inner courtyards (first the typical Andalusian patio with the figure of the virgin and the Christ, and, then, the patio of the lucky orange trees). If the weather is good, we will go up to the roof terrace with views of the Giralda tower and the Alamillo bridge, designed by the architect Calatrava Our apartment belongs to a well known impressionist SPANISH ARTIST's, PEPIN RICO, that in 1886 he had the honor of exhibiting his work at the POMPIDOU Art Center in Paris. He's popular for his portraits of Christ and his sculptures of bulls, which is why the folkloric Seville fell in love with his work. As a teenager, Pepín Rico began to carve wood in his father's cabinetmaking workshop. With this data, we understand the sculptural agility that reflects his work. This first profession is latent in the space where we serve our dinners, since all the furniture in our house has been designed by him. This and its paintings adorning the walls of the dining room, turn the space into a very particular and unique place Rico, the artist's son, is a professional chef with experience in traditional and MICHELIN STAR (like Martín Berasategui -3 stars Michellín- and Mirador de Ullia -1 star Michellín). He will prepare a GOURMET set menu where you will have the chance to taste the best of the Andalusian contemporanean Gastronomy, but with his special twist (because his tapas are not the same than restaurants). He likes to treat our dishes as if they were art. Myself I am a CERAMIST and I design and make with clay all the plates where you will enjoy the meal prepared by Rico. I studied with a Japanese teacher and in Japan a meal isn't considered quality if it isn't served in a pretty dish. I am an ART LOVER so I will explain you everything about the 3 artists: Rico the painter, Rico the chef and my clay! We have our home restaurant 'Estamos Enrollados y nos mola hacerlo en la cocina': www.estamosenrollados.com, where our aim is to offer sensory, gustatory and visual pleasure in each dish.

Only the last part of my review was published last time. Just let me tell again it was a wonderful experience with lovely vegan food.

the missing star in cleanliness is not for the flat itself, but for the stairway up to the flat, very adventurous anyway.

We loved this experience. Rico and Irene were welcoming hosts and we had the pleasure of enjoying dinner with some of their friends as well. Everyone was interesting, funny, and patient with my language barrier. We not only got a chance to enjoy Rico's incredible food, but it was served on Irene's gorgeous ceramic plates, bowls, and mugs.

Eat(ing) With Irene and Rico was so much more than a meal. Climbing the stairs to their flat was like something out of Harry Potter - we felt like we were special guests at a secret club. Meeting Irene and Rico we immediately felt like we were seeing old friends. Rico cooked and Irene joined us for dinner she was delightful funny, passionate and creative (you must see her pottery!) Rico splits passion between cooking and playing in a band. God I love passionate, creative people! Rico started us off with a watermelon/tomato gazpacho surprisingly delicious. The chef's rolls, a Catalan take on sushi were amazing and led to a very funny translation of "a roll in the hay". We loved all the food and the wine Irene chose - but our favorites were the ricotta ravioli with coconut /basil sauce and of course the beet and coconut desert! The food was of course the star but Irene and Rico make you feel like you are friends and a at home in Catalonia! Do whatever it takes to Eat With Irene and Rico when in Barcelona!
